"China Clipper Calling Alameda"

Down the way from Jellystone Air Park:  "Aviation Picker" Russ Farris' vintage aircraft radio collection.  Just what you would expect to see in a hangar that is home to a 58 year old Cessna 172 and a couple of Studebakers.  Ground school for the Setchell Carlson Range Receiver (top left) starts Friday.  Are your charts up to date?
